How is the 21st century changing kiwi families?

Massey University invites you to hear how the 21st century is changing kiwi families with Distinguished Professor Paul Spoonley. As the second decade of the 21st century draws to a close, there are some interesting social and demographic trends that are changing the nature and structure of what was the typical New Zealand family. Some of these factors are economic: the perceived vs actual cost of raising children, the conflict between earning an income and raising a family and young adult debt and the increased cost of housing. While other factors are long term demographic trends including, a decline in fertility, a delay in having a first child and the decision to have less children than previous generations.Join us as we uncover what is happening to the changing face of the kiwi family and if our policies are appropriate and adapting to what is relevant to the 21st century.
